A really big thank you to the lovely Rebecca for sending me out this little gem of a box! I’ve not has the pleasure of visiting Cornwall just yet but it’s on my list of places to visit so this box is a nice little taster of what Cornwall has to offer!

If you missed my live unboxing, you can catch it here on our YouTube channel:

Original Cornish Fairings Biscuits

A favourite for over 100 years, Furniss is the only company to hold the trademark for The Original Cornish FairingTM. These uniquely spiced biscuits have a taste that is right out of Cornwall; making you feel like you are actually there with every bite. These biscuits are so deliciously moreish!  Buttery, spicy and with a wonderful crunchy texture they went down as an exceptionally tasty treat!

Cornish Tea Trading Co. Smugglers Brew Tea

Smugglers Brew is a unique blend which will delight your palate and stir your senses. Designed to be ‘an all-day and everyday’ Tea, Smugglers Brew provides a good honest cup that you will love. As someone who enjoys a cuppa, I was really happy to see this product in this box. A really lovely cup of every day tea, strong flavourful and gives you that extra caffeine boost when you really need it. It went especially well alongside my Cornish fairings biscuit!

The Cornish Biltong Company – Original

Delicious handmade Biltong using the finest, locally sourced beef Cornwall has to offer. I really love the taste of dried meat, I find it really flavourful and this brand did not disappoint! The biltong is free from chemicals and artificial preservatives so is vacuum sealed inside a resealable pouch to keep the product fresh. Definitely one of the best biltong I’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting. It has a tasty chewy texture that tingled in my mouth and is delightfully seasoned.

Get Fruity Oat Bar – Moist Mixed Berry Bar

The Award-winning great tasting Get Fruity bar; made of real fruit, fruit juices with gluten free wholegrain oats baked to perfection with absolutely no artificial bits. This is a really good-sized bar that is tasty, fruity and makes a great snack! It has a loads of flavour and has a similar texture to cereal, a really yummy oat and juicy fruit mix.

The Cornish Jute Bag Company

The Cornish Jute Bag Company supply fairly traded and environmentally friendly Jute bags made from 100% natural materials! Jute is a better version of the more common material hessian, and although both are the same material Jute offers much more in terms of strength, durability and generally makes a better product. This cute handy little bag is really strong and durable. It’s also reusable and recyclable and great for using as a gift bag for treats or keeping little bits in or using it to carry your lunch.

Verdict

What a wonderful idea for a subscription box! I love all the genuine Cornish products provided in this box and it comes beautifully packaged too in a reusable box! It definitely gets me really excited about visiting Cornwall and what wonderful things Cornwall has to offer! Whether you’ve been there before, or not this subscription offers some of the finest quality products from Cornwall that are lovingly handpicked just for you so you can have a little piece of Cornwall with you wherever you go!
